EEDAR’s Jesse Divnich doesn’t agree with other analysts who are calling on Sony to drop the price of PS3. According to Divnich, PS3 doesn’t need a price drop in order to stay competitive as “sales have been consistent and in-line,” for a platform which continues to grow its install base. Divnich also said consumers shouldn’t read anything into the console’s price-cut at GameStop, as it’s just a temporary sale. “There could be many elements at play, but I highly doubt this is any indication of weakness for the PlayStation 3,” he said.

Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz has deduced Prototype 2 will “struggle” to sell 500,000 units in the US during its first year on the market, predicting the title will see a “soft performance” compared to sales of the original title. Creutz noted the game has yet to break Amazon’s top 100 selling games charts, which was “typically a bad sign for actual sales.” The firm originally expected the title to “slightly exceed” the 900,000 units Prototype 1 sold in the US during its first year. Prototype 2 releases worldwide, next week, on April 24 for PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version is expected on July 24. Thanks, Gamasutra.

Industry analyst Doug Creutz of Cowen and Company isn’t confident Wii U will have an impact on publisher shares when it hits the market later this year, as historically, most publishers have a “low exposure” to Nintendo platforms.
